Concrete Garage Bases Chorley
Bases can be constructed in many sizes to take different weight loads. There are 2 main ways we can reinforce the concrete base, by using metal mesh, known as reinforcement grids and by adding fibres into the concrete mix. Reinforcement in concrete is used to ensure that the cracking which always occurs does not threaten the structural integrity of the concrete.
The way we work the concrete is with a shovel and a strong rake to roughly level out the wet concrete, and then a straight-edged timber can be used to tamp down the concrete to the correct level. Tamping helps eliminate air pockets being trapped in the body of the concrete and also helps to push the hard aggregate into the concrete, bringing sufficient of the matrix to the surface to make smoothing (floating) easier.
